In Rocket Boy, one young boy’s dreams come to life the moment he puts his pencil to paper. Rocket ships, race cars, and safari animals are just a few of the wonders he sees before he comes safely home to bed, left only with drawings to remember his adventures.
At Godine, we all know and love the illustrations Rocket Boy‘s protagonist brings to life, but now we want to see what you dream about!
Submit a one-page, black and white drawing of your most wonderful dreams. Are you soaring through the stars? Deep diving with beautiful sea creatures? Building a wild new invention?
Send your submission (and any questions) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Rocket Boy Contest,” or to our office at 15 Court Square Suite 320, Boston, MA 02215 by June 30th, 2017 to be entered into our contest. One entrant over 15 and one entrant under 15 will win a copy of Damon Lehrer’s Rocket Boy. Please include your name, the title of the drawing, and whether you will be entering the adult contest or the children’s contest with your submission.
The contest will be judged by Damon Lehrer himself along with a member of Godine publishing staff, and the winner(s) will be announced on July 21st. Good luck, and get drawing!
